/I/ TO THE TOP WITH BLESSED PIER GIORGIO
Prayers/Meditations



Prayer was central to Pier Giorgio's spirituality. He was often found praying at the foot of his bed. He made rosaries for his friends and was frequently seen with one in his hand. Once, as he exited a church with his rosary in his hand, someone said to him, "So, Pier Giorgio, you have become a religious fanatic?" He calmly answered, "No, I have remained a Christian."

In 1925, he wrote to his friend Isidoro Bonini, "...I would like for us to pledge a pact that knows no earthly boundaries or temporal limits: union in prayer." It was Pier Giorgio's desire that his friends -- including you -- remain united in prayer. This section contains a selection of prayers, meditations on charity and mercy and some remarks by the popes about Pier Giorgio.
